This is a test your teacher gave you. If you don't know where to start, you need to fail it. Getting answers from others will just put you in a deeper hole. Discuss this situation with your teacher.

The series of questions you asked are routine questions.
If you are finishing a semester and are reviewing for exams, you should know how to do these.

For the above question,
- how are slopes of perpendicular lines related ?
- what point is associated with the y-intercept of an equation of the form
y = mx + b ?

• Math -

The y intercept of your y = 4x line is zero, and since the second line also has that y intercept, both lines must go through the origin (0,0).

The product of the slopes (m) for the two lines must be -1, if they are perpendicular. The first line has a slope of 4. You should be able to figure out the rest of it.
